Mine will be my parent’s champagne glasses and my late grandmother’s handkerchief.

Mine will be the gold in the band of my e-ring: we’re having one custom made with the gold from the original 18k yellow gold setting from my mom’s e-ring.  My mom has actually lost her diamond TWICE, and each time my dad bought her an entire new ring, so we have two settings we’re going to have melted down and used for my ring.  So, the gold is technically really, really old, but was mixed and made into jewelry 33 (band 1) and 10 (band 2) years ago by the time of the wedding.

These are cool “old” details ladies, keep em coming.

My mother has a necklace that was her great-grandmothers, it dates back to the 1800’s. It might be a little too much for my dress so I have to try it on all together. If it doesn’t go with my gown, my mother will wear it on my wedding day instead.

I’m secretly hoping I get to wear it – even though my Mom’ll prob. make me take it off for the reception. No way she’s going to let me wear a nearly 200yr old necklace while we’re all dancing to “Jump Around” Hahaha!

My mother has her grandmother’s wedding dress from 1920, I tried it on but there’s such thing as too vintage!  It must have been very trendy in its day, but between yellowing and fragile and her different body type, it wasn’t flattering at all.  For my something old, I think that I will try to have a hairpiece made out of the falling-apart wreath-thing that goes with the dress, and maybe my sisters and cousins could wear it too.
